Magnetic Poetry Saturday – 18 February 2017

when spring follows winter
too soon with greening and
beautiful rose and daffodil blooms
nature secretly longs
for one more frosting

On The Cusp of Spring


spring
buds bloom
on the cusp
as winter looms
a stubborn squatter with a frosty bite

Spring Coup


Ribbons of golden sunlight splay
the shades of gray
as glooming clouds
descend like shrouds.

Her chilling kiss of icy mist
denies our bliss;
Chilled to the bone
we rush for home.

But though the day seems dark and cold
Winter grows old.
Her days are few.
Spring plans a coup!

Robin Red In Winter

defiantly he puffs his crimson breast,
his muted warbling chokes on frigid air,
heart aflutter on lofty bough he rests
starved for warmth beneath the sun’s icy glare

his muted warbling chokes on frigid air
enduring his inevitable fate
starved for warmth beneath the sun’s icy glare
they’ll return when spring is greening where he waits

enduring his inevitable fate
though his flock mates flew to warmer climes
they’ll return when spring is greening where he waits
instincts in play to help him pass the time

though his flock mates flew to warmer climes
heart aflutter on lofty bough he rests
instincts in play to help him pass the time
defiantly he puffs his crimson breast

Winter Song – Magnetic Poetry Monday – 19 December 2016

bird on a bough
deep in sweet song
happily she seasons
the cold winds of winter
and earth’s quiet browning
blanketed in frosting
she must be warmed
by memories of spring
